Jan 28Many Holidays, One Mercy Housing
For many Mission Creek seniors, the Autumn Moon Festival, a popular holiday celebrated throughout East Asia, brings a sense of belonging and thanks. Though it’s a cherished holiday for many households in this community, they hadn’t had the chance to celebrate together with the entire Mission Creek community.
Mercy Housing values community involvement beyond words and jumped at the opportunity to support volunteers and residents to make the Autumn Moon Festival a big hit. Gatherings like these are opportunities to learn from neighbors and seniors avoid isolation while irreplaceable networks of support are created. Wells Fargo shares these community values and sponsored the event.
Volunteers and residents enjoyed this joyous holiday together, helping each other to create lanterns and served tea and mooncakes — the essential traditions that make this time of year so important to these cultures.
Thank you Wells Fargo, for supporting Mercy Housing residents as they build meaningful bonds, honor their traditions, and keep the spirit of home thriving at Mercy Housing California.
